Even the news, started this day
.. with promises of "brief periods of sun"
It was true... I blinked several times
.. to get the rain and sleet out of my eye...
... and nearly missed my shadow, each time.
Portland, at least, got smarter
.. with a pavilion for the opening Saturday Market.
Though... I heard that Portlanders are prone
.. to hide from the sun even when it does happen.
... "What's that bright thing in the sky?"
I'd even consider dropping bait in a sucker hole
.. but the ice is gone and steelheaders
... are thrashing the river to a froth . . .
Isn't that one of those "higher orders of prayer"
.. conducted with a fishing rod in hand?r.anderson 5Mar2011
